The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has described the news being circulated on social media of how he vowed to destroy the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and their leaders as well as the Movement for the Actualisation of a Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and Niger Delta Avenger as a piece from deceased minds.
The statement by his Media Aide, Mr. Valentine Obienyem, noted that since Obi left office, the concocting of news against him has become the norm among those that do not wish him well.
Obienyem explained that they had gone to the extent of requesting him to stop attending events as well as threatening to kill him.
“When they speak or act, all one sees is the antics of a group that is competing and fighting with itself,” Obienyem submitted.
Further, he said that just about three weeks ago, the same people embarrassingly put words into the mouth of the revered Dr. Alex Ekwueme, saying he rebuked Obi for speaking against Nnamdi Kalu, when nothing of such happened. He said that regrettably, they had now come up with the tale of Obi planning to kill Nnamdi Kanu.
Obienyem who said that no amount of blackmail could tarnish the character and reputation of a man who is godly and good, prayed that every of their deadly concoction would continue to fail.
Concluding, Obienyem called on the masses to continue to disregard such news, assuring them that Obi remains committed in support of the greater future for the Igbos, which he believes would be achieved thought equitable restructuring of Nigeria.
Meanwhile, Obienyem said that anytime Obi wishes to speak on any issue, that it would always be through recognised and credible channels.
